Achieving a hole-in-one is more often a dream than a reality for the bulk of golfers, with many of them going well over 50 years without getting an ace. However, Didsbury Golf Club’s young star Oliver Pierce has bagged his first-ever ace in spectacular style at the tender age of 14.
Oliver, last year’s Didsbury Junior Captain, has currently been enjoying the sunshine and golf in Florida along with his parents Lee and Alyson, and has been practising and playing at various golf courses in the sun when he just had ‘one of those days’!
He started the day that he will never forget with some practice on the range at the world famous David Leadbetter Golf Academy, when he was joined by current world number 15 and English rising star Tyrell Hatton – who was practising prior to his appearance in the Masters at Augusta.
Following the practice session and a good lunch Oliver then went to the nearby Highlands Reserve GC with his mum and dad in tow. Playing off the back tees on the 188-yard 12th hole he struck a superb five-iron into the breeze, onto the green and then into the hole for his first ace – what a day!
